Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

Pretty good climbing starting on the left side of the formation, then trending up and right. There are some fragile edges and fins that will wear away with a few more ascents. The rock is generally sound and the climbing enjoyable.

Protection

A standard rack to 3" should do. It takes wires and cams and the pro is good.

Be ready for loose stuff beyond the ledges. My wife pulled a chunk as large as her torso off this one. This along with the descent from the route makes you forget that the climbing is actually pretty good.

I used two cams as directionals for the second and stoppers exclusively for protection. Solid placements the entire way. Oct 31, 2009

LOOSE! Broke off both handholds simultaneously while above my first piece of gear. Thought I was going to deck into the scrub oak for sure. Spent the rest of the climb trying not to soil myself. Dec 3, 2012

An elegant, easy climb. We encountered no loose rock to speak of. The Dementor rap is longer and brushier than one might expect from the guidebook. Nov 29, 2014
